『British Foreign Office: Japan Correspondence』の1918年分

British Foreign Office: Japan Correspondence』とは、英国外務省の公文書のうち、日本大使館からの文書を集約したもの。

大日本蹴球協会設立のきっかけとなったのは、FAからのシルバーカップ寄贈であったが、それは英国外務省からFAに依頼されたものであった。『The Times』紙1919年1月9日、1月23日付にそれを示す記事があることは「日本サッカー通史の試み⑭ 大日本蹴球協会の創立(1)」に記した。

英国外務省が英国大使館からの連絡もなくFAにカップ寄贈を依頼するはずはないので、それが英国外務省公文書に残っていないかを、『British Foreign Office: Japan Correspondence』で調べてみた。あるとすれば1918年分で、該当するファイルは日英親善関係だと考えた。

時節柄、第一次世界大戦とその戦後処理に関するものが多い。

文書名からFAへのカップ寄贈依頼に関するものはない。そこで、日英親善関係のものに絞ってみると、Reel 5のfile 94808に「Prince Yorihito Higashi Fushimi's visit to England」(東伏見宮依仁親王のイングランド訪問) が「日英親善」関係に近いかと思い、マイクロフィルムを調べたが、見当たらなかった。これだけで100ページ以上あり、1918年分を精査しようとすると、かなり大変そうである。
